This week’s guest is Natalie Flores, founder of Nourish LA. Natalie answered the call to action during the Covid-19-induced food crisis. Now she’s turning her endeavor into a full blown non-profit to feed more people.
During our conversation we talk about how gardening fostered Natalie’s desire to serve the community and bring people together. She shares her favorite things about her own garden, and we chat about food waste and what we can do to stop it.
